Our Grandparents

I haven't posted anything in over a week! It's been a busy one and I don't know where the days have gone. Seriously it seems like it's the weekend and then before I know it, it's almost the next weekend. Time goes by TOO fast (and I attribute all that to having a child) and I need to catch up before I forget anything!
This week Nathan and Lindsey's grandfather (his mom's daddy) passed away. Some of you might know that he had heart surgery about 8 weeks ago, then started dialysis for his kidneys, but could never quite recover from everything. He passed away peacefully this past Tuesday. He was a wonderful man. Nathan has so many good and funny memories, as do the rest of their family. Really, there are ALOT of funny stories from Nathan's parents, aunt and uncles, and grandkids about their grandaddy. I'm so thankful I got to know him these last few years that we've been married. The service was great and the Lord provided such a beautiful, spring-like day. Could not ask for more. Nathan's dad spoke at the funeral about his precious memories and it was both funny and sweet, and just the way his Grandaddy would have wanted his funeral.

I've mentioned before that my grandmother now lives here in Birmingham as of December. She is in a great place that cares for Alzheimers and dementia patients. She had a really hard week last week and has been in the hospital since last Sunday. We think she is on the upswing but would appreciate you keeping her in your prayers. She has always been such a huge part of our family and it's sad to see your grandparent be so different than they've always been. We also know she misses my Grandaddy so much, whether or not she can remember or verbalize that. We love her so much and can't wait for her to get out of the hospital and get back to her "new home!"

Here is our sweet Grandmama with 3 of her grandchildren and 8 of her 13 great-grandchildren-the others were at Disney for spring break and we missed hanging out with them!

Enjoy the beautiful weekend!!
